Our first ever surfboard repair party happened August 7th, 2008. Hosted by Robert Kirkpatrick in Santa Cruz, CA and a repair team of Santa Cruz locals Christian Kocher, Alaya Vautier, and  Julia Hengst. Thank you for the donations of boards, leashes, wax, fins and sun cure for Balikbayod! This was lots of fun and we hope to be doing more of these repair days in the future. Thank you for believing in this cause.

First leave the boards in the sun so the wax can be scraped off easier
